West Coast & Glaciers Backpackers & Hostels

The West Coast or just the ‘coast’ as locals call it, is packed full of wild rivers, amazing coastline rainforests and glaciers. Its two most famous glaciers, Fox & Franz Josef are definitely worth a trip to see, as are the Punakaika ‘Pancake’ Rocks, visiting a seal colony at Cape Foulwind or driving along the coastal road – voted one of the top 10 in the world!
